Omar questions Congress approach towards Jammu and Kashmir


Former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday questioned the Congress’ approach towards the state of Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Taking to micro-blogging website Twitter, Omar wrote:” It says a lot about the Congress party & its approach to J&K. There hasn’t been a single election meeting by its leadership. Contrast this with the number of rallies addressed by Modi ji & Amit Shah. They may not have come to the valley but they didn’t ignore the state.”

Omar also said that by ignoring the state like this, the Congress is giving a walkover to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“The Congress was in with a fighting chance in 4 of the 6 seats and in 3 of these the BJP was the main opponent. It’s inexplicable how the BJP was simply given a walkover as far as the optics of the campaign were concerned,” Omar tweeted.
